A character in one of Akira Toriyama's manga will be returning to "Dragon Ball Super." The official website of the anime series announced on Tuesday, Nov. 22 that Arale from "Dr. Slump" will be appearing in episode 69 titled "Goku vs. Arale! Hachamecha Battle de Chikyū ga Owaru?!" (Goku vs. Arale! A Nonsense Battle Will End the World?!).

Arale Norimaki is a female android built by Senbei Norimaki. Despite her unbelievable superhuman strength, she is known for her lack of common sense and naivety. She also wears prescription glasses due to nearsightedness. Senbei wants to convince the people in the Penguin Village that Arale is a typical girl. Mami Koyama, who previously played Arale in the original "Dr. Slump" series, will be back to reprise the role.

According to Anime News Network, "Dragon Ball Super" episode 69 will follow an event called the "World Invention Award," which honors the best inventions in the world. Senbei will be awarded for his invention and Dr. Mashirito will launch an attack due to frustration that he was not invited in the event; however, Arale and Gatchan will side with him. Luckily, Bulma is also present at the awarding and Goku is working part-time at the event as a security guard.

"Dr. Slump" was published by Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine from 1980 to 1984. An anime series with 243 episodes was produced by Toei Animation which was aired from 1981 to 1986. A remake of the series consisting of 74 episodes was aired from 1997 to 1999.

Arale has also appeared in some episodes of the "Dragon Ball" anime series episodes and even in some "Dragon Ball" films and video games. She also had a cameo appearance on "Dragon Ball Super" episode 43 back in May, but this time, the "Dr. Slump" main character will be one of the key cast.

Meanwhile, the Future Trunks Saga arc is expected to come to an end in "Dragon Ball Super" episode 68 on Nov. 27, while "Dragon Ball Super" episode 69 will air on Dec. 4.
